Phishing is an attempt to obtain your personal and confidential information by fraudsters posing as a legitimate company through electronic communication.
An example of phishing is an e-mail or text which appears to be from a legitimate company and contains instructions that you must verify specific information in order to avoid interruption to your service.
Many financial institutions and retailers are targets of phishing scams. If you are ever asked to verify confidential information in the above manner, please contact us and/or your other financial institutions directly and do not respond to suspicious e-mails or texts.
WSECU will not ask for confirmation of confidential information via e-mail or text.
